  • Dark Souls II Playstation 3 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 22, 2014 under Playstation, Featured, PS3 Reviews
    I have died over one-hundred times in my first twenty hours of Dark Souls II. I've fallen from great heights, been poisoned, burned to a crisp, ambushed by club-wielding mutants, blown to pieces by explosives, and been filled with more sharp objects than a storehouse full of knife boxes. In any other game, this would make me hoarse with rage. Most games these days go out of their way to be as empo... more.
  • South Park: The Stick of Truth Playstation 3 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 5, 2014 under Playstation, Featured, PS3 Reviews
    This game had the entire deck stacked against it. The development of South Park: The Stick of Truth had to suffer the collapse of THQ along with the stigma of Obsidian Entertainment being behind the wheel, a studio that always seems to have their projects booted out the door before they are ready. There's also the fact that every single past game to bear the South Park name have been universally t... more.
  • Contrast Playstation 3 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on December 7, 2013 under Playstation, Featured, PS3 Reviews
    Contrast has been advertised as the newest videogame indie gem. It sports a look that wouldn't be out of place at a 1920s European Circus, is made by the unknown Compulsion Games, and ambitiously attempts to combine puzzle-platforming gameplay with a touching story about childhood and family. Taking into account the budget the studio had to work with and remembering just how wrong other indie game... more.
  • Bioshock Infinite Burial At Sea Episode 1 Review – Treading Water

    0 CommentsPosted by on November 22, 2013 under Playstation, Featured, PS3 Reviews
    Bioshock Infinite has been one of the most incendiary videogames released this year. Some people, myself included, loved the experience. A twisted mash-up of high-concept historical science fiction, political commentary, deconstruction of the illusion of choice, and a brutal human perspective on sin and forgiveness all punctuated by ferocious First-Person Shooter gameplay adding up to an unforgett... more.
  • Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag Playstation 3 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on November 9, 2013 under Playstation, Featured, PS3 Reviews
    Assassin's Creed is a series I've always liked but never truly loved. The annualized series has always maintained a consistently interesting line-up of settings and conflicts with its historical fiction, but always seems to falter in some fundamental areas. Whether it's an issue of pacing, or control problems, or a protagonist who is as likeable as a sack of hedge trimmings, there is always someth... more.
  • F1 2013 Playstation 3 Review

    Gentlemen, start your engines. F1 2013 is back for more heart-pumping action-packing Formula One racing, and it's just what your mechanic has ordered. As a big fan of motorsport I've always enjoyed racing games, whether it was a simple Arcade racer or something as rewarding as F1. However, for the F1 experts and returning gamers, one must ask if F1 2013 is an improvement or more of a light tune-up... more.
  • Lone Survivor Director’s Cut Playstation 3 Review

    1 CommentsPosted by on October 12, 2013 under Playstation, Featured, PS3 Reviews
    Jasper Byrne is a very talented game maker. Working by himself over the course of four years he created Lone Survivor, a survival horror game that has earned him a lot of respect. It has received considerable critical praise and a lot of commercial success. So much so that he has been collaborating with Curve Studios, the ones who gave us the Playstation 3 and Vita ports of the sublime Thomas Was ... more.
  • Beyond: Two Souls Playstation 3 Review

    David Cage's follow-up to the commercially successful Heavy Rain has a lot going for it in terms of raw production. Quantic Dream's figurehead has had access to a full motion capture studio, billions of dollars of assets, a robust development cycle, and the talents of Hollywood actors Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe all for the express purpose of his latest opus. What is sad is that in spite of all of... more.
  • Saints Row 4 Playstation 3 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on September 2, 2013 under Playstation, Featured, PS3 Reviews
    Saints Row is a series that has slowly risen in popularity. Originally starting life as a thinly disguised Grand Theft Auto knock-off, it has fully grown into something complimenting the hallmark series replacing cynical realism and dark satire with stylized surreality and ostentatious parody. Saints Row 4, which has been advertised as the final adventure for the 3rd Street Saints, has finally bro... more.
  • Killer is Dead Playstation 3 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on September 2, 2013 under Playstation, Featured, PS3 Reviews
    Suda51 has always been a personal favorite when it comes to game design auteurs. His collection of cult classics have always managed to be a great antidote to conventional games on the market with a potent mix of avant-garde presentation and satirical subtext. Even his more tame projects always maintained his manic signature style. From the reversal of gender roles and imagery in Lollipop Chainsaw... more.
  • The Walking Dead: 400 Days Playstation 3 Review

    2 CommentsPosted by on July 6, 2013 under Playstation, Featured, PS3 Reviews
    There is no doubt in declaring that Telltale Game's The Walking Dead was the runaway hit of 2012 and still continues to enrapture gamers of all types through PC, Playstation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and even smartphones and tablets with its first Season of five interactive episodes. Not only was it a hit, it was a massive critical darling, receiving universal praise for the richness of its writi... more.
  • Deadpool Playstation 3 Review

    Deadpool, aka Wade Wilson, was a test subject of the Weapon X Program, which was responsible for creating the X-Men character Wolverine. He has superhuman regenerative powers from the experiments but it has left him completely insane. Ever since, he has been a manic unstable mercenary willing to take just about any job if the pay is good, or if the comic writers force him. Deadpool is also a fully... more.
  • The Last of Us Playstation 3 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on June 21, 2013 under Playstation, Featured, PS3 Reviews
    Zombie apocalypse settings are everywhere in games. One can't throw a brick without hitting at least one videogame that has either zombies or a bleak near-future plagued by zombies. We've had mature zombie games like The Walking Dead, bloody and visceral zombie games like Resident Evil and Dead Space, even silly zombie games like Plants vs. Zombies and Dead Rising. In this sense, Naughty Dog's The... more.
  • Remember Me Playstation 3 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on June 5, 2013 under Playstation, Featured, PS3 Reviews
    Remember Me was the spotlight of debate when it came to it having a female protagonist. The French studio, Dont Nod Entertainment, was having trouble finding a publisher for their dystopian sci-fi game because conventional wisdom said the game would not sell with a female protagonist. Eventually, Dont Nod's project was taken up by Capcom and the title has finally come out. In this one instance, bo... more.
  • Hyperdimension Neptunia: Victory Playstation 3 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on May 28, 2013 under Playstation, Featured, PS3 Reviews
    There are a few phrases and a question come that to mind while playing Hyperdimension Neptunia: Victory, the latter being “did she just say what I think she said!?” Hyperdim—let’s just call it HDNV-- is a JRPG from developers Compile Heart and Idea Factory, though not the first of its series. It plays like a visual novel, levels up like an RPG, has the jokes and tone of a parody. It also h... more.
